Blind lead in memory accuracy
Experts at the University of Bath discovered that individuals with no visual experience had the most superior verbal and memory skills.
A team from the university’s psychology department ran memory tests on groups of congenitally blind people, those with late onset blindness and sighted people.
Each participant listened to a series of word lists and was then asked to recall what they had heard. Research has previously shown people can falsely remember words related to those that have been said.
